Professor Sir Tony Atkinson
(1944-2017)

It is with great sadness that we announce Professor Sir Tony Atkinson, Centennial Professor at LSE, died on Sunday 1 January 2017.

Tony Atkinson joined STICERD in 1980 where he was chairman between 1981 and 1987 and an active affiliate for the following thirty years. Throughout these years, many CASE researchers and associates had the privilege to learn from his sharp mind, dedication to policy and great kindness. Tony influenced our thinking on poverty, inequality, social mobility and public policy. By establishing the Welfare State programme in 1985 Tony played an important role in the foundation of CASE as an independent research centre in 1997. He also appointed Professor John Hills who would later go on to become CASEís Director.

Tony contributed 31 valuable papers to our publications over the years, as part of the Welfare State Programme and later as CASEpapers, these are available here.
